Dear Queenie,

  Lots of times I buy things with coupons or at special sales that I don’t need for myself, but I can give as gifts.

  Queenie, is this okay? I don’t want to seem like a cheapskate.—Smart shopper

 

Dear Smart shopper,

  It is nobody else’s business what you paid for the gift you give them. What is important is how much they like it.
